Facsimile of the chapters of The Mother by Sri Aurobindo

Dear Friends,

Sri Aurobindo has described the Mother as the one who ‘is the divine Conscious Force that dominates all existence, one and yet so many-sided that to follow her movement is impossible even for the quickest mind and for the freest and most vast intelligence. The Mother is the consciousness and force of the Supreme and far above all she creates.’ In his Savitri, he has described the Mother as ‘the golden bridge, the wonderful fire./ The luminous heart of the Unknown is she.’

Sri Aurobindo’s booklet The Mother (published for the first time in 1928) consists of six chapters, all of them were written in 1927. The first chapter was originally written as a message, the second to fifth chapters as letters. The sixth chapter was written for inclusion in a booklet that eventually consisted of the message, the letters and Chapter 6.

As our humble tribute to the Mother on the occasion of Her 139th Birth Anniversary, the facsimile of all the six chapters of Sri Aurobindo’s booklet The Mother (in Sri Aurobindo’s own handwriting) has been published in the online forum of Overman Foundation.

With warm regards,
Anurag Banerjee

    Many thanks to you dear Anurag for offering this wonderful gift on the great Day of the advent of the Divine Mother …Could there be a greater offering than this – ? these are revelations from the highest Source which put at rest all our doubts about the Truth – Identity of our Sweet Divine Mother – It is a supreme work by the Supreme for the Supreme and of the Supreme ..the Upanishad of the Upanshads ..So , we repeat with the Divine Mother with faith and devotion this line from Savitri – ” “Those who have seen me shall grieve no more “…

      ‘The Life Divine’ is the metaphysical foundation of the divine life while the book ” The Mother ” hews the pathways to the life divine. ” The Mother ” is a powerful ‘Yoga – Shastra ‘ with wonderful narrations of the four great powers of the Divine Mother in poetically entrancing manner ..wonder , in this context , if this may be called ” The Divine Life in miniature ” !
